Termite treatment

Termite treatment

Have you discovered active termites on your property? The first step to an effective termite treatment is getting a termite inspection. A pest inspection is used to determine the most effective termite treatment option.

It is imperative at first signs of termites or termite activity that you contact a pest control professional. This will reduce the risks of further damage and save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in destruction. 

No matter if you are located on the Sydney, Canberra, Newcastle or the Sunshine Coast. We cover vast areas of the east coast of Australia, from Maroubra to Maroochydore. We can provide you with the most effective and efficient termite treatment possible.

Every house, location and termite infestation is different. We have a variety of treatment methods and technology to suit every problem. Through our extensive experience we can determine the best solution, be it termite monitors and baits or chemical treatments. To give you an idea of how these treatments work, they are explained in more detail below.

Our termite treatment options

Termite baiting and monitoring

Baiting and monitoring stations are a highly effective non-chemical termite treatment. A monitoring zone is for detecting the presence of termites rather than immediate treatment.

Baits and monitors are low impact and don’t require any chemical spraying or drilling. The termite bait systems are placed into the ground to eliminate the termites currently on your property. The monitoring stations will alert us about any new termite presence.

There are certainly more advantages than disadvantages to the monitoring and baiting treatments.

Whilst monitoring and baiting can be time consuming and requires regular inspections, it is a highly effective treatment option. In addition, it is an easy system to add or modify, giving flexibility. You can also see the system in use, giving that peace of mind.

Termite chemical barrier

A highly effective liquid chemical, such as Bayer’s Premise® 200 SC, is used to treat around the perimeter of your house and other termite entry points located in your home to provide an effective and reliable zone that will expose any termite attempt to enter your home. All of the chemical treatments we choose to use are not only approved for use by all relevant regulatory bodies but also proven over time and with our experience to be safe and effective.

The termite chemical barrier consists of long-life chemicals that are placed in the soil or under the slab surrounding your home and act as a repellent or contact poison to termites to prevent them from entering your home.

The termite chemical barrier treatment is performed in three stages:
  1. Eliminate the termites currently inside your home, through dusting or foaming treatments.
  2. Treated zones: trench around the outside of your home and drill down through any outside footing to inject the chemical into the soil surrounding your home. See applying the chemical, below.
  3. Annual inspections.

While the termite colony is not eliminated, it is unable to re-enter your home due to the chemical barrier.

Applying the chemical to create the treated zones:

  • Digging trenches around the perimeter of the structure and around the other contact points including supports, piers and plumbing.
  • Carefully drilling into the concrete slab areas that adjoin the building’s perimeter, e.g. pathways.
  • In some cases a termite chemical reticulation system may be installed so chemical can be reapplied if necessary.

We recommend that our customers, at the very least, get annual termite inspections.

What type of termite treatment is best?

There is no simple answer. The type of termite treatment should be decided by accessing your situation.

Is there anything you can do to prevent termites?

There are several things you can do to prevent termites visiting your home. Here are a few easy prevention actions you can take. To learn more, visit our termite prevention page.

  • Use pine needles or pebbles instead of mulch. Termites like to munch on mulch.
  • Subterranean termites also like moisture. Keep moisture away from your home.

It is much easier to prevent termites in houses that are yet to be built.
